Never mind what the calendar says; winter weather is definitely dragging on and on this year and it’s affecting those who like to fish and camp in the mountains.  Before you head up to the mountains to go fishing or camping, you may want to check to see if you favorite fishing hole or campsite is open. "We are expecting that there will be some impacts from all the snow we've received this year.  Snowpack levels are higher than normal and we are getting some snowfall at campgrounds, particularly with fishing season starting soon.  We've got still some frozen lakes, so we are expecting some limitations on access to and opening of boat launches and campgrounds.” Deschutes National Forest spokesperson Jean Nelson-Dean says several popular places will have 60% of their sites open for fishing season; but due to the weather they will not have water available.  Those sites are: Gull Point, West South Twin, Link Creek and East Davis campgrounds.
